For many people, the COVID pandemic is already starting to fade from memory and life has returned to normal. For some of us, however, it’s not so easy to forget the misery so many of our elected officials and even our own community brought into our lives. Neighbor turned on neighbor, family members became estranged, friendships were ruined. Why?
Two issues became the focal point of so many divisions: masks and mRNA vaccines. For many, it did not take a medical degree to quickly come to the conclusion that intermittent use of masks were marginally effective at best. All you had to do was watch people for a minute—not only did the majority wear them incorrectly, but they also were constantly touching their faces and moving the mask aside for periods of time. The true idiocy of the craze became apparent when health authorities announced that we could go back to restaurants, but had to wear masks as we entered. However, they assured us, the danger would magically disappear when we were seated and food was served. Yeah, that makes sense. Not.
Masks were simply virtue-signaling talismans.
But vaccines took the polarization to an entirely new level. Entire swaths of citizens were deemed enemies of the country by our own president, and many thought that those who did not want to get the shots were simply stupid or evil or both. This is in spite of the fact that it quickly became apparent to any rational mind that the mRNA jabs weren’t working to stop transmission or infection. By the summer of 2021, I already knew multiple people who had gotten vaccinated only to come down with the virus soon after. And yet the zealots continued to shun science, ignore the evidence, and shame non-believers.
If you’ve forgotten just how vicious many lamestream media reporters and Democrat politicians became, here’s a refresher. You might think, oh, that’s old news, I don’t want to think about it. But we can never forget, and we must never let it happen again.
My wife used to say, if Fauci told them they’d be safe if they just burned you at the stake, they’d be at our door with the wood.

Morning Joe co-anchor Mika Brzezinski, who as one of my co-workers put it, looks like an HOA Karen, starts off the action. “You are the unvaccinated. You are the problem. The unvaccinated are the problem—period, end of story,” she says. Not very tolerant or inclusive, are you Mika?
Don Lemon, MSNBC’s Jonathan Capeheart, frequent pundit Dr. Leana Wen, unfunnyman Stephen Colbert, Whoopi Goldberg, Howard Stern, Joy Reid, Neil Cavuto, and Jimmy Kimmell all pile on, calling the unvaccinated “lunatics” who are “not to be trusted,” who are “killing people,” and who should be denied hospital beds. It’s truly sick stuff.
“We’ve been patient,” said Joe Biden. “But our patience is running thin.” That sure as heck sounds like an outright threat that he will use the full force of the government of the United States government against anyone who dares defy his will. “This is not about freedom or personal choice,” he added. Yes, it was about exactly those two things Joe.
“Screw your freedom,” said actor and alleged Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger in a staggering display of anti-American rhetoric.
Alex Berenson, novelist, journalist, and critic of the response to the virus writes on his Substack:
I am not exaggerating when I say seeing the video made me stomach sick…
They were afraid of us, and they hated us.
The oddest part of all is that so many of them still do. It was their god that failed.
But we’re the ones they blame.
The viciousness and self-righteousness displayed by so many “leaders” during the pandemic will go down as one of the darker periods in American history. It would be bad enough if they were right—but they were wrong, and it was they who ignored the science. Trust them again at your peril.
